Two youths’ views on ‘sanctuary state’

Two California teenagers, both undocumented, share their views on proposed legislation that would limit how California governments can cooperate with federal immigration enforcement. One teen lives in Hayward, a city with ‘sanctuary’ policies for its undocumented residents passed in response to the Trump administration’s anti-immigrant stance. The other is a 19-year-old in Kern County who is so fearful of deportation he avoids simple fun like going to the movies and often stays home.”If California were to become a sanctuary state, then undocumented teens like myself could breathe a sigh of relief.” Read the essay in the San Francisco Chronicle.
